Ok, so we taught you how to make Pajeon in our last FAPFAP. It’s SO EASY TO MAKE. You have no excuse to not make it. But what about other kinds of Jeon? What about Kimchijeon, which is better than Pajeon? You neeeeeed to knooowww the truuuuth.

So we’re gonna show you the truth. Here’s us eating a bunch of different Jeon, which – on the menu – is Modum Jeon. Modem Jeon? I don’t know. All we know is this: we’ve been to a lot of different Jeon places. This is our favourite in Hongdae. There are more popular ones, like that giant one by the Hongik Station with the baskets of Jeon spilling outside (you know the one, right?), but that Jeon is greasy as hell, and once gave us food poisoning. This place, though, is our favourite spot. It’s close to our studio, and we go there often.

Funny story time! One time when we were going to this place, we ran into a guy who stopped us. I can’t remember his name because I’m a bad person STOP MAKING ME FEEL GUILTY OK?! Point is, he stopped us and said he watched our video, right when we were about to go inside. What’s interesting about it: he went to University of Toronto, where we went. Even more interesting, he went to Woodsworth College, which I – Simon – went to. Even more interesting: he was the Frosh leader, back when I went to orientation, AND HE FREAKING REMEMBERED ME! Not like “oh, I’ve seen your videos, I remember you,” but “you were at Frosh week, I remember you!” Can I tell you how mind blowing that was? I was such a different person back then: buff as hell, wearing only basketball jerseys, long hair, sullen and eml and depressed, barely contributing anything to any conversation, not anywhere close to as obnoxious as I am now. And I – somehow – stood out in this guy’s mind. Either he’s amazing with people and names, which I clearly am not, or he’s a wizard. I’m impressed. So, point of the story: we met him outside of the restaurant we often go to.

Ok, back to being informative and stuff. Jeon is delicious. Yep.

    Oysters are not necessarily expensive. In fact, frozen and canned oysters are very cheap. Oysters come in all sorts of price ranges. If you really like oysters, you should visit Taiwan. They are known for their fresh oysters with all sorts of dishes with oysters like the oyster omelet (with egg, sauce, potato flour pancake all mixed together) 蚵仔煎, oysters with rice vermicelli 蚵仔麵線 , fried oyster nuggets 炸蚵仔酥, steamed oysters in broth 蚵仔湯, pan-fried oyster pancakes 蚵仔煎餅, and oyster croquettes 蚵嗲. The oysters are large and sweet in southern Taiwan, but all really quite good everywhere. Some of the most delicious oysters I ever had were in Taiwan.

  4. My friend’s mom made this Jeon where there’s like, meat, squash, green onion, crab meat, and kimchi in it…it was so yummy! Best jeon i’ve ever had. (Idk what kind of Jeon it was though…)

    I want to see a FAPFAP about lactose free dessert options- you guys are always going out for ice cream and it looks so yummy… But I cannot have. Also, I thought most East Asians were lactose intolerant too?

  6. I don’t know if you take requests for videos, but I know of a place that I went to while studying abroad in Korea that I think you might enjoy. It’s called Empada and it’s a small cafe near Dankook University in the Jukjeon Yogin (I hope I spelled that right) area. It’s located behind the Caffe Bene. They sell really delicious homemade empanadas and they have various kinds. They also make Baby Dutch Pancakes that are to die for!!! I believe that everything they serve is homemade actually. It’s a small place, but really delicious and I think it’s something you might enjoy. The owner speak English very well too so it won’t be hard to communicate if you have any questions for him.

    So… im hungry… and I guess I like torturing myself. Anyhow… Is it weird that I want to go home and make … Bacon Jeon?

  8. Becky Hobbs Haler

    Have you guys tried Vatos Urban Tacos? A lot of the military spouses talk about it but I’d love to hear your perspective. Thanks!

  9. AHHHHHH my mouth is watering….. Humph and I can’t eat right now >.<

  10. I’m addicted to kimchijeon right now. I ‘ve been making half of Martina’s pajeon recipe, using kimchi instead of onion, and eating it for lunch…nom nom nom

  11. Hi Martina and Simon!..I love your channel, especially FAPFAP program. i

    halal(kosher) food n Seoul?? love you guys..

  12. Hi, I was wondering if you could tell us the address of the restaurant?

  13. Hi can you talk about Korean ice cream? That you buy in super market and ect. :)))) thank you

  14. OKIEBOI1992

    I remember going to Korea back in 2009 December and I ate some green pancake things at Nami Island and they were DELICIOUS AS FK xD I wanna go back there just to eat those again ;~;
    I just searched for it, they’re called hoddeok. And apparently lots of people say the one at Nami Island is the best for them xD

  18. ugh that jeon makes me drool P:

    also haha at that korean visual effect where simon’s head enlarges xD

    yay! i missed these! looks yum!

  20. Am I the only one who would totally dig seeing an entire episode of FAPFAP/WANK/K-Pop Music Monday/TL;DR done entirely in Korean? I think it’d be cool to hear them speak Korean for a full 4+ minutes. We’ve heard and seen snippets and it’s just one of those things. Like knowing a friend can speak another language so you ask them to say all these random words/phrases for you V:

  21. Chocolate jeon sounds really gross ._.

  22. brandon lawrence

    I what to eat Korean food but i am in England so Korean is not well know can anyone help :-(

  23. Sara Suzanne Berg

    I had a seafood jeon at a jeon restaurant once… the kind where they fry it fresh for you at the table…
    And it made me sick, I had to leave early… (then I ordered fried chicken when I got back to the dorms. Yaay fried chicken!)
    I have not had jeon again. Bad memory. :(

    • That sounds like it was a Japanese style restaurant to be honest… I’ve never seen Korean jeon “made at your table” it’s way too ugly and messy for that! Hahahah! Maybe you had Okonomiyaki?

      • Sara Suzanne Berg

        I have no idea, to be honest. I was just like, “Oh, the group is going out to eat? Oh. Okay. Can I come? Cool. Let’s go!” (group because I was a student in a study abroad group at the time~ lol)
        And then later it was all like blalraksjdlkbjaargggg unhappy stomachhhhh~. Probably because I was at the end of the table with the seafood one…

        i have a picture actually! /remembered!

  24. DuchessRhea

    What was the name and exact location of the place? I wanna go there next time I visit Hongdae!

  25. katanacutie

    Dear Simon and Martina,

    You should have Leigh do a weekly (or fortnightly or monthly) segment about student life in Korea from a foreigners perspective. The TLDR you did with Leigh was awesome! And it would be amazing if she had her own video series about it.

    Thank you so much for everything you do!
    Lotsa love, Erin (A.K.A. a dedicated Nasty ^_^)

    I love Pepto Bismal, when I was younger I used to chug down bottles until my parents took it. I still love it, guess I’m the only one.

  30. i have watched all your fapfap’s ,cause i love you guys, but i have noticed one really big problem for me… i’m allergic to onions. like i have to go to the hospital allergic. is there anything good with out onions and do most restaurants allow you to take them out? it might sound like a stupid question but in other countries i have been to look at me like im crazy when i say NO onions(whatever the word is there).

  31. Jenna Renée Morris

  39. Jessica Corbett

  40. I forgot I turned the sound down on my laptop, so when the video started playing, I had a panic attack, wondering what happened to the sound. I figured it out, though, and all is good XD
